Campground Reviews

Jul 17, 2016
The campground had a lot to offer but at a hefty price. $36 for a wristband was way o deprived, especially since tubing was shut down while we were there. Also, $6 to rent a bike was a little expensive and that's what my kids were most looking forward to. The bathrooms could have been cleaner.
Jul 17, 2016
KOA cabins have been our first choice wherever we go and we have been to a lot of them. Hayward was the most disappointing. Campground was pretty with the trees but the upcharged for most everything (jumping pillow) even though their rates were the same as other KOA's who don't charge for extras. Plus 1 and 2 room cabins do not have tv's? Bathrooms need upgrading as well...other KOAS are better.

Awesome week. Workers very friendly and very accommodating, amenities great, yes it was a perfect week and we will be back next year!!!

We get so many positive comments from our guest I wouldn't want anyone to think they become common to us. Each comment is appreciated and we listen to all. Thanks for your thoughts.

2nd year at Kayward! Relaxing and fun for the kids we were a little disappointed that the tubing was closed but that's not the KOA's fault

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

6 to 9 inches of rain with-in a short amount of time..... Great for green grass.... bad for steady tubing! Thanks for understanding. We're now fairly back to normal.

We have been spending a week every summer at the Hayward KOA for the last 10 years. We always have a great time and plan to return in 2017!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Awesome. Many of our guest return many times throughout the season and most year to year.... We look forward to your return.
Jul 16, 2016
Wonderful staff, we had a great time even in the storms,

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It's funny how when your enjoying yourselves even the "bad" times can be fun.... rain, flooding and all!
Jul 16, 2016
Very clean campground. Very friendly staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

THanks. We have a great staff again this year. We'll pass along your comments as they are as involved in the park as we are and appreciate hearing our guest thoughts.

Our 4 yr. old grandson had a great first time experience at KOA. We stayed busy morning to night playing in the play ground, jumping on the giant pillow, and even walked up the stairs 11 times to do the water slide. Can't wait to do it again.it was very family oriented and very clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Awesome....wow, 11 times. Sounds fun but wow.
Jul 16, 2016
I love that wooded KOA! It is clean & neat all the time. The staff is so very friendly, also.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. We treat others the way we would wish to be treated and we're glad you and your group enjoyed your stay. The golden rule still rules at the Hayward KOA.
Jul 15, 2016
Very tight campsites, 50 amp not every every site and only the pool was free but definitely not heated. Was a well kept place and lots to do for kids but we had no idea everything cost separate. Was disappointing after driving 10 hours and no mention on site.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry your experience wasn't what you expected. Our pool is heated 24/7. Every where our park is advertised it shows the different site options and specifies some of the adminities are extra....
Jul 15, 2016
Staff is always friendly and helpful. Our cabin was short on supplies, and after calling the office they were delivered promplty! The campground is clean and well maintained. A great retreat for families!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very good. We stock our cabins for our average guests stay so if you stay for a longer period we'll be glad to bring you more product. Thanks for staying and come back soon.
Jul 15, 2016
We stayed in cabin KL7, which we have for the past five years. The blinds were really dusty and the curtains had cob webs. Other then that, we had a great stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks so much... I passed your comments to our house keeping lead and a;ll will be taken care of. If even an issue please feel free to alert the office. Thanks again!
Jul 15, 2016
We always have a great time at Hayward KOA. Next time we come we plan on staying for an extra night or two!

Halloween is Labor Day weekend! Very fun!

Tent sites were too close together,esp @ $45/nt, which didn't include the waterslide/tubing/jumpy pillow. There were also loud drunk campers nearby until 3a.m. From rdg other reviews, apparently there is a # posted on the door of the store, but I would've had to walk all the way over there, past the drunk campers to get it. The # should be included in ck in materials, or it should be patrolled.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have security on site. 11 PM quiet hour is enforced. The number is posted at office for any issues. We have an awesome group of campers who frequent our park several times throughout the year. We offer a clean, safe, quiet camping experience which is attested to by the many pages of reviews.
Jul 14, 2016
Lots to do, but they have what we consider some awful sites. Full hook up premium between two cabins so tight we could not get in. But they were very accommodating and allowed us to pick any open site.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm glad we could help. The office is always willing to accomidate anywhere we're able.
Jul 14, 2016
Very family friendly campground. Loved it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very good. Thanks for coming.
Jul 14, 2016
Second time here. Other than the intense rain and our spot was flooded over the fire put depth plus some, we like the campground. They even replaced our wet wood and raked around the pit. Traffic at night does get quieter too. Will be back. Great family campground. And the rain was 6 to 9"" of rain which is rare.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The rain was intense! Glad we could be of assistance with the wood etc. We'll look for your return.
Jul 14, 2016
This was our first KOA experience so we weren't sure what to expect. Our family really enjoyed it and our boys (7 & 3) LOVED it! Everything was very clean and well maintained and we felt safe letting the boys run around. Very family friendly - we'll be back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Another awesome comment.... thanks so much for staying!
Jul 14, 2016
I liked how the bathrooms were constantly being cleaned. We had a wonderful time!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Evey hour and every 15 minutes during heavy usage. Thanks for the comments. We'll pass your thoughts along to our staff.
Jul 14, 2016
We had a blast besides the storms and we feel the campgrounds are super close and the wood is expensive but it was cool it got delivered to our campsite. Didn't like that we have to pay for the jumping pillow especially when my kid was barely on it. Everything else was pretty expensive too that's why we didn't do anything else but we did enjoy our campsite and the staff. So thank you!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks, sorry the jumping pillow wasn't used to much.... we just installed a brand new pillow last week. We are currently working to see what can be done with our wood cost. There are very few that supply wood here and we have to pay what is required and that limits us.
Jul 13, 2016
So many things to do right at the camp site. 12 children and never heard I'm board

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

AWESOME! With 2 playgrounds, mini golf, volley ball, 300' waterslide, tubing/canoeing, DJ dances, outdoor movies, basket ball, horseshoe pits, tether ball, Free Friday nite smores, nightly wagon rides, games, acitivities, crafts, contest, jumping pillow, etc. I'm not surprised, but glad to hear!

There were things advertised that were not available (wifi) or at a cost, unlike other KOAs we've visited. Its ridiculous that it costs to jump on the pillow and use the slide! When I bought the activity bracelet for my kid I accidentally put it on too tight. I sent her to the office to ask for a new bracelet, she was told she'd have to buy another one!
Jul 12, 2016
We were placed in a "Deluxe" Tent spot and the spot barely fit our 5 person tent, we were unable to use our Fire pit because it was located between 3 trees and no chairs would fit around it where it was located due to the fact that we were really only inches aware from the Road. We were crammed in there like a bunch of Sardines too. Many of your Campers were snotty & the registration piece SUCKED

We came in late after the Spooner Rodeo. Staff were pleasant. Bathrooms were not the cleanest.
Jul 12, 2016
Excellent place for kids!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Clean, safe, secured, whole family fun!
Jul 12, 2016
The campground was nice and clean and there were a lot of amenities for kids . But, it was very noisy with the ATVs coming in each night around midnight . I would suggest having an area of the campground designated for people with ATVs.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts.

It was a very nice well run campground. Felt like campsites were on top of each other. For the overnight price I felt that some of activities should come with the price.
Jul 11, 2016
Beautiful and clean. Friendly staff and lots of fun things to do.
Jul 11, 2016
What a great place to camp with kids. Should put a little more gravel on the camper pads, was soft and muddy. Campers do not put thier personal vehicles far enough off the roadways, so it is difficult to navigate through the trees and vehicles. Love the big trees though. Wifi was non.existant, difficult to send a quick message back home. These days, communication by internet is very important
Jul 11, 2016
I think the Movie night should be on Friday and the dance party on Saturday to spread out the fun. Would it be possible to include the jumpy pillow as part of the stay free so we don't have to pay daily? Overall, my family loves this campground, the amenities and activities. It is a favorite of ours.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Most of our guest arrive on Friday PM so they would miss the dance. We have found that including the jump pillow into the base price can't fit into the budget. We are continually looking for ways to lower our cost though. FYI... Next week we are installing a brand new pillow!
Jul 11, 2016
Why is everything a la carte? Pay $50 a night then charge for waterslide, jumping pillow, mini golf? Ridiculous - oh yeah no wifi and the pool wasn't heated.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our park is in the top 3 % of all 500 KOA's in the nation and ranks at a 28.5 out of 30 for GoodSam's. Sorry your experience wasn't to par but as always, if there are ever any issues while visiting, please let the office know and we'll do all were able to improve your experience.
Jul 11, 2016
Lots of fun things to do

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Many fun things for whole family fun. Come back soon.
Jul 11, 2016
Everything was great as usual.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Exceeding the standards.... everytime, is our goal!
Jul 11, 2016
We enjoyed our stay. Disappointed that the waterslide, mini golf, and jumping box were additional expense. This should ALL be included in the stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Many of our guest don't use any or all of the adminities so we've found a one price fits all doesn't work well. We continually are looking for ways to lower our cost and now include up to 4 guest per site in the base price unlike most camp grounds who base the prices on only 2. Thanks
Jul 11, 2016
We really enjoyed our cabin and the KOA experience at Hayward. The pool was nice and warm and we had a good time in it. Golf was fun and the jumping pillow was great. Waterslide was fun for our family. We will be going again soon, for sure, and are looking forward to another stay there.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Awesome.... can't wait to have you back! So many return guest help make the park that much fun. Your why we're here and we're thrilled you had a great time at the Hayward KOA.
Jul 11, 2016
The staff was very friendly and helpful, on checkout the dump station line was backed up they opened up full,hookup sites to help keep the line moving. They had lots of fun kid activities for all range of ages. A great kids craft. And a great playground with lots of fun things the kids can play on along with a nice pool, jumping pillow and mini golf. My kids are already asking to go back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Awesome. Glad you liked it!
Jul 11, 2016
We knew it would be great when the owner came out and greeted us upon our arrival. This campground had so many fun things to do for both kids and adults. We loved that we could rent movies for free in the main office. It was so family friendly, our kids were always off playing with other kids and we knew they were safe. It was very clean, thank you so much for a great stay!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Clean, safe, fun. We were glad to meet you and appreciate your staying at our park. We're always thrilled to hear when our guest have a great time and want you to know your why we do what we do. Having guest and their friends/family create great, lasting memories makes all our labor very worth while
Jul 11, 2016
If you are looking for a place to stay with kids I would suggest staying at Hayward KOA. There is a lot for kids to do here. We enjoyed all the activities and playgrounds. The camp sites are very small and its very busy here so I personally wouldnt stay here if I didnt have kids just because I would rather have more nature and less people but for families who dont mind lots of people it is fun.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Next time try and get a site in the 400's..... Also the shoulder months of the season are quieter.... remember the autumn colors will be coming in September and with all these trees of every type.... this area is beautiful!
Jul 10, 2016
I absolutely love this campground! So much for the kids to do and everyone is always friendly.
Jul 10, 2016
